"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Namibia and 3 other countries between 29 Aug 2022 and 27 Sep 2022
"We initially booked this trip with Expert Africa in late February/early March, 2020. Then Covid hit and the world went into lockdown. Maruska was our contact person from the start, making the reservations and setting up the itinerary for us.

We went through many ups and downs over the course of these two years, never sure if indeed the trip would materialize. Initially we postponed the September, 2020 trip to 2021, but it still did not seem wise to go then, so we postponed it to August/September, 2022. If we could have gotten most of our deposit returned, we would have cancelled the entire trip, with all of the continued worries and anxiety that Covid was inflicting on the world.

As Expert Africa has a firm policy of not returning deposits, we postponed the trip again to 2022. We are so glad we did! It all turned out fabulous, and thankfully, we remained healthy.

Throughout this long postponement, with the changes involved, Maruska was always exceedingly polite, understanding, and respectful of our worries and concerns. She did an extraordinary job arranging our trip, which involved four different countries, multiple flights, and many different camps.

The organization was outstanding and everything was seamless.

Truly incredible attention to detail. Thank you.

"Our Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 7 Aug 2022 and 20 Aug 2022
"This was another great trip from Expert Africa. It was originally supposed to happen in 2021, but it was well worth waiting for.

The way that Lucy organised the order of our visits, and the choice of camps that she recommended was excellent. Everything ran very smoothly and we saw so much game at the first camp we were almost spoiled for the rest! The camps all had different features and we enjoyed the different experiences at all of them. I had an ambition to see Wild Dogs which was fulfilled, and the Chobe NP probably has more elephants than you could possibly imagine.

The Guide at Linyanti Bush Camp rather let the side down, and I have elaborated in our detailed feedback on this camp, but that shouldn't detract from it being a lovely camp with great camp staff.

The only slight criticism is that we hadn't expected the ground to basically be sand which meant very, very bumpy rides, and that we didn't have the best footwear. This was very different ground to other safari venues we have visited - but we managed okay - might just be worth forewarning folk if they've not been to Botswana before.

Overall a fantastic holiday, and we shall of course go with Expert Africa on future journeys to that great continent.

"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 25 Jul 2022 and 13 Aug 2022
"A fantastic holiday experience only marred slightly by abysmal international flights with British Airways which is not Expert Africa's fault in any way.

Very, very pleased with Tracy Lederer (and Lucy Copson who stood in for her when Tracy was away).

Lodges well chosen with wonderful accommodation, guides, variety of landscape, wildlife and activities." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 15 on a Botswana safari

"Our July 2022 trip to four camps in Botswana"

I visited Botswana between 14 Jul 2022 and 29 Jul 2022
"Maruska was excellent to work with!

The four camps we visited were all very good.

Although our wildlife viewing at Splash was excellent, we would probably not return due to the very rough roads in deep sand.

We developed a preference for small camps (e.g., not more than six tents or units).

We love Botswana and we are grateful for Expert Africa's excellent help in organizing the trip. This was our fourth trip to southern Africa with Expert Africa." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 10 on a Botswana safari

"Botswana 2022"

I visited Botswana between 12 Jul 2022 and 27 Jul 2022
"The trip was focused on trying to see and photograph Wild Dogs with a Kalahari extension for Meerkats bolted on. Despite a hiccup with our luggage thanks to BA and some issues with dog dens sadly being in conflict with lions, the trip delivered all that we had hoped for and a few surprises. We added 7 lifer sightings to our list which is always great!
The Kalahari was the real surprise in terms of experience and sightings, and certainly encourages us to go back again in green season.
We chose the Kwando camps in and around the Delta based on reputation with Wild Dogs and the ability to off road in private concessions, and two out of the three camps were excellent. It is always high risk to have a pretty single minded goal on a trip but it finally paid off and we got some great other sightings / encounters along the way. Having the trackers on the vehicles was essential as good old fashioned detective work is critical to sightings - the landscape can be pretty challenging at this time of year between green and dry. Our stay at Kwara Camp has set a standard for safari accommodation that will never be beaten!
Overall the trip delivered what we were hoping plus a very special dog encounter." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Botswana safari

"This trip exceeded expectations. The wildlife was fantastic and the lodging was comfortable and luxurious. Everything ran so smoothly. Maruska did a wonderful job picking a variety of camps for us where we had different experienced and saw the animals we were interested in. We had incredible sightings and a great time.
